Tyson Food donates nearly 350,000 meals to U.S. Army families at Fort Bragg
Tyson Foods announced a donation of 87,500 pounds or 350,000 meals to U.S. Army soldiers and their families stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Thousands of soldiers from Fort Bragg were recently deployed overseas and the donation is an effort by the company to recognize the sacrifice by our service members and their families.
“Like so many Americans, thousands of military families will gather this Sunday to celebrate great food, the competition of sports, and the camaraderie of friends and family,” said Debra Vernon, senior director, corporate social responsibility, Tyson Foods. “We hope this donation will make those gatherings even more special and provide one less worry.”
Since 2015, the company has donated more than 50 million pounds of food to food banks, community pantries, and disaster relief.
